3.   Words from Coach Mark

 

Effective kick starts with a drive at the hips and the power builds down through your thighs, shins, and ankles to your toes. Keep your legs long and relaxed.

 

Kicking is like walking. It is a smooth,

comfortable, relaxed movement which starts at the hips.

 

Kicking power starts at the hip and the power flows down your leg.

 

----HIP, THIGH, KNEE, SHIN, FOOT - HIP,

THIGH, KNEE, SHIN, FOOT

 

Your freestyle kick should be no wider or deeper than the deepest or widest part of your shoulders.

 

Most common kicking problems

 

-large excessive knee bend or all legs

-stiffness or rigidness in the action

-feet lifting out of water

-relax, long and be loose

 

Corrections

 

-more from hips, slight knee bend

-heels breaking the surface

 

Remember keep your legs long and relaxed!

 

Good luck!
